I have many times when the person from the technical side claiming to be more critical and discerning than those from the aesthetic side, often expressed in a condescending way when comparing FF cameras with those with smaller sensors.

Sorry, I don't see examples of the opposite assumption. Your signature says "look at the picture, not the pixels." I've yet to run into someone here in this, or any other photography forum, expressing the opposite of look at the pixels, not the picture.

Remember also that the technical side of photography is typically measurable and quantifiable. Get into a technical discussion and logical assessments and conclusions can typically be made. All things being equal, a larger sensor, for example, will produce superior image quality. If you were to say that doesn't matter to you then someone else could logically conclude that the measurable improvements that are the result of using that larger sensor are not important you, fairly making you less critical and discerning in that regard.

Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
